$200 Target Gift Card Christmas Giveaway

I love Christmas, I really do. I just don’t like Christmas trees.  Why? Well, I have two very good reasons. Two very furry reasons.

The reason I’m a familiar face at the local Apple Store

So, you can understand my hesitance to put up our Christmas tree. I’m pretty sure, once it’s up, It’s going to come right back down! Gizmo, our newest addition, at almost 8 months old now, has also come to be known as the Destroyer of All Things. I’m pretty sure he’d make short work of our itty bitty Christmas tree.

That said, I’m still going all out when it comes to decorating; I’m just going to have to get creative when it comes to cat-proofing all my holiday-pretties. This time of year I usually head out to Target because not only can I help Santa cross a few things off his list, I can add a few new Christmas decorations to my ever-growing collection, and I have a feeling that this year I’ll need to replace a few through the course of the holidays,due to having a kitten in the house.

I love Target so much that I decided to team up with a few friends and host an awesome Christmas giveaway! ‘Tis the season for shopping, and we’d love to help you cross a few things off your list with a chance to win a $200 Target Gift Card!

Little Kids and Public Restrooms

roll of toilet paper

The other day Gaby and I were out shopping and she let me know that maybe I was right about having drank an entire 20 ounce bottle of water right before we left the house . . . she should have used the bathroom at home before we left! Neither of us like using public restrooms, but not just for the obvious (and gross) reasons, but because up until … Continue reading

Are Kids Getting Meaner?


  Like many of you, I recently saw the story about a *mother who shaved her daughter's head, shaved it almost completely bald, in order to punish her for letting her hair get to the point that there was something she called a "rat's nest" of tangles in it. For the most part, people responded in shock and horror at the punishment and shaming the … Continue reading

Larger Amazon giveway graphic

I can't believe Christmas is less than two months away. Less than two months.  Let that sink in for just a moment. Weren't we just all talking about how everything gets coated, dipped in and covered with pumpkin spice from late August until the New Year, and then discussing how much Halloween candy our kids got?  Now we're staring … Continue reading

November is Prematurity Awareness Month®

Blogger Baby's Second Sonogram 7-25-05

It was June of 2005 and my folder at my OB-GYN's office had a big purple sticker on it with the letters, "AMA."  I asked the nurse who was doing my prenatal screening for my initial visit with my OB-GYN, what it meant. "Advanced Maternal Age." Ouch. That stung just a little bit. I didn't exactly consider myself of an "Advanced Maternal Age" … Continue reading

Autumn 1 WM UTO

Without a doubt, Autumn is my favorite time of year.  Oh I know, I've been writing a lot about winter and snowboarding lately, and waiting for snow! However, the lead up to Old Man Winter's grand entrance, is the most beautiful time of year! It's no secret that I've had a pretty difficult adjustment since moving from Maine to upstate NY. This … Continue reading

Too Much Chanel No. 5


To the Woman in Front of Me at the Board Shop Who Not Only Didn't Know What She Was Talking About, but Who Bathed In Too Much Chanel No. 5, Hey Hun! We didn't get a chance to properly introduce ourselves when we were at the board shop earlier. I'm Audrey, the woman standing directly behind you. Surely you remember me? I was the one leaning … Continue reading

Let’s Call This One, Irony


So, I mentioned yesterday that I've been posting a photo every day, to Instagram of Gidget in a beanie that she got last week while at the launch party for Burton Snowboard's 2015 line.  Sometimes she doesn't even realize I've taken the photo until I'm looking through the images and am about to ask her if it's OK to post.  She looked at it before I … Continue reading
